FIFA: Insufficient evidence of doping by Russia's WCup squad

FIFA has found insufficient evidence of doping by any players in Russia's World Cup squad but continues to investigate other footballers in the country.

In an investigation sparked by World Anti-Doping Agency evidence, FIFA has been examining doping samples provided by Russian players seized from a Moscow laboratory along with information from former chemist Grigory Rodchenkov and the whistleblower's database.

It had prioritized giving a verdict on the players set to feature for Russia at the World Cup, which kicks off in Moscow on June 14. Russia last week named a provisional 28-man squad, plus seven reserves.
